Murder by Misrule honored again

Murder by Misrule honored again

Murder by Misrule has been awarded an Indie B.R.A.G. medallion.

The mission of these kind people is “to discover new and talented self-published authors and help them give their work the attention and recognition it deserves.”

To which I say most heartily, “Thank you!”

 This book, the first in the Francis Bacon mystery series, was also named one of Kirkus Reviews’ Best Books of 2014.

Here’s hoping that somehow, somewhere, Francis Bacon is also pleased.


alli_badgeThis series of historical mysteries features the philosopher-statesman Francis Bacon as a sleuth and spymaster. Like his spiritual descendent Nero Wolfe, Francis prefers the comfort of his chambers, so he sends his assistant, privateer’s son Thomas Clarady, out to gather information. Tom loves the work. He meets all manner of interesting people, like Sir Walter Raleigh and Christopher Marlowe, not to mention the beauteous women who pop up wherever he goes.
